During the nineteenth century, the Commonwealth of Massa- 
chusetts experienced an almost complete transformation. The 
changes which took place during those years touched all 
aspects of life and segments of society within the state. 
The popiolation, continually increasing, became in many ways 
diversified. The mobility of existing population and immigra- 
tion produced numerous changes in the political, social and 
intellectual life of the state. Once dependent on agriculture 
and shipping, the state by 1880 was one of the most industrial- 
ized in the nation. The nineteenth century population 
experienced rapid urbanization as nximerous new cities and 
towns arose throughout the state and population increased in 
those already in existence. By the l880*s the state seemed 
much smaller as canals and especially the railroad provided 
a transportation network which latticed the entire state. 

One of the more active participants in this process of 
change was the IVIass, General Court. Though perhaps as much 
an observer as participant, the General Court , through consider- 
ation of various petitions and reports placed before it, left 
behind a mound of legislative documents regarding various as- 
pects of political, economic, and social life in 19th century 
Massachusetts, In all more than 15,000 separate pieces of 
legislation were considered during the years 1802-1882, 
Most of these dociiments have remained lost between the covers 
of the enormous volvimes in which the bills and reports are 
bound. Those which ultimately became acts or resolves could 
be easily traced, and of course all are referenced, however 
briefly, in the Journals of the House and Senate, But it has 
been difficult to locate bills by subject. 


This index is a subject guide to all resolves, bills, 
reports, memorials, petitions, messages, letters and public 
documents formally considered before sessions of the Massa- 
chusetts General Court from 1^04-1^^2, The bills (general 
term for legislative documents) are listed by year, b branch 
of legislature within each subject heading. Hence, for example; 
52H252 is House bill number 252 for the year 1B62 (see list of 
abbreviations and symbols for special cases). It is important 
to note that prior to IB3I, the legislature held several ses- 
sions per legislative year whifeh at that time went from May 
to May of the following year. Hence there are often several 
bills of the same niimber for each year. The researcher is 
thus advised to search a bit if the first bill consulted bears 
no resemblance to the subject at hand. 

The bills subdivide into two general categories: general 
bills and reports. Since the reports tend to be more informa- 
tive, care was taken to describe each report with some indica- 
tion of content, while limits of space and the nxoraber of bills 
prevented such attention to be given to each individual bill. 
Bills generally run no more than 3 pages while reports run as 
large as I50 pages. Some reports which originally were sub- 
mitted to the General Court as bills later became public docu- 
ments. For a list of subjects so published, see appendix I, 

Bills further subdivide into resolves, petitions, and 
occasionally, messages and memorials. Messages and memorials 
are noted while all numbers without special notation should be 
considered either resolves or petitions, 

I wish to acknowledge the assistance of a niimber of people 
in the preparation of this index. The project could not have 
been completed without the constant encouragement of Mr, I, 
Albert Matkov, State Librarian, As this index goes to press, 
Mr, Matkov retires from State service and it is hoped that this 
index will serve as an appreciation for his years of devoted 
service to one of the State's most distinguished libraries. 


The staff of the Massachusetts State Library, both past and 
present, assisted in a variety of ways, particularly Mr, 
Michael Galvin, who indexed some of the reports, and Mr. 
Alan Fox, The present staff provided a pleasant and quiet 
atmosphere which allowed the work to proceed on schedule, 
Mr, Leo Flaherty of the State Archives answered many questions. 
Finally, Mr, Geoffrey Patterson cheerfully accepted the burden 
of typing a difficult manuscript. It is hoped that in some 
small way this index will aid scholars and histoiy buffs in 
the study of the history of a state about which much has been 
written but about which many questions still remain unanswered.
